Day 17

Turns out there was no reason to dread yesterday's cardio workout! I rocked that elliptical right off it's gliders! I'm guessing that maybe my legs were just exhausted since Wednesday was basically the only day they had off. I had a lovely lower body lifting session today and then it will be cardio again tomorrow...but I won't be dreading it this time, I swear!

We had our last yoga class on Sunday night and it was so much fun! He tried to teach us handstands, but after feeling like I was going to fall on my face in Spriderman Pose, I didn't even bother trying! We did a modified Wheel pose (so sue me if I used blocks and the wall!) and he said I did it perfect! That made me very happy and made me want to learn how to do it without the modification. It's one of those ones that is harder than it looks!

Yikes! This version looks way hard!

We got a free pass to use for a class there now that we've "graduated", but I'm a little intimidated since we never got to the part on how a class actually flows. I think I might try a podcast or video at home first! Any suggestions?!

I'm finally starting to feel a little more at home in the kitchen and whipped this up for dinner...

Tofu Bites & Sauteed Veggies! YUM!

So Yummy! I'm glad the kitchen isn't the scaresville it used to be! Although, I still can't do much in there, but let's just take it one day at a time!

I would show you all the lovely things I ate today, but you'd be bored...not to mention the fact that I almost eat the same thing every day on this BFL plan! So, let me at least spread it out over a few posts!

It was weigh in day over at the Sisterhood...down one more pound!

Day 16

Enter Week 3! And still going strong! I can't believe how well things are going so far. I was mostly afraid that I'd lose the food battle, but that has been the least of my worries. On Sunday, my free day, I didn't even know what I wanted to "splurge" on! It feels so great to be putting good things into my body and not be afraid to eat. I can finally trust myself...for the moment ;)

While the food thing is going very well, I'm starting to dread cardio. I knew this day would come. As a matter of fact, today is cardio...and I haven't gone yet. Normally, I'd have already been to the gym by now. Here is the problem of the moment: I'm bored on the elliptical, but it's still kicking my hiney all over the place so I don't want to abandon ship yet for another machine. What is a girl to do? I told myself I would change everything up at the 4 week point so I'm trying hard to stick to that plan...but it's hard right now. Then again, no matter what machine I'm on, I'm supposed to push myself to the limit and I'm sure that's never fun! Ew!

So, wish me luck in surviving today's cardio monster! I'll have a yoga update tomorrow...goodness gracious is that stuff tough!
